    That is one of the better attempts at classic cars IMO, instantly recognisable and captures most of the lines. The custom options are amusing too!

    A set of zip-lock bags are exactly what I need. I'm re-building the crane - it's not a new set any more, and when I initially disassembled it all the parts went into different bags, which are starting to tear anyway with pieces falling out from time to time.

    Think it looks the business - I'll definitely be getting it at some point but it won't be for me. The Mrs loves the old Mustangs and is getting envious of me building my other kits so I gotta do the right thing and get it for her!

    Crazy price: https://www.amazon.co.uk/LEGO-Creat...GT+2019&qid=1553784442&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmr2

    Guess it's because it's yet to be released. Should be cheaper later on in the year.

    It's been released - had one here for about a month. Mine came with a free Lego Mustang keyring and a 'My other car is a Mustang' bumper sticker. Silly price on Amazon is because it's temporarily out of stock on the Lego website. Not sure who would pay nearly double the price rather than wait a week or two.

    Ah, that's a relief - didn't think it was worth £200 TBH. Expected a similar price to the Saturn Apollo kit which was around £80.

    I picked up the Steamboat Willie at a Lego store yesterday.

    For the collectors, the early boxes have a mistake on them, they are numbered #24 in the ideas series but should be #25. Later boxes will be corrected; the store was full of #24 boxes.

    Thanks for the tip on that. I picked one up today from the Manchester Arndale store, they had a good bit of stock, all still #24 boxes. Annoyingly I didn’t have any points on my VIP card so paid full price (seems rather expensive at £79.99) but got a free easter toy which usually end up being worth £5-10 so all helps.

    They had a built Steamboat Willie in the window and it looked good to me. I’ve seen a couple of sneering comments about this set (mainly folk not liking the monochrome, which I think is great!), but I really like the look of it. The ‘Ideas’ range is Lego’s best IMO, if I was starting off collecting for investment again I think I’d buy that series alone, just grab a couple of each as they are released.

    I probably need to grab a Flintstones set, but I’ll look for discounts on that one.

    Marchbanks Golly, do I ever have a lot of soul!

    You should have taken precautions. But in a public place, really. Serves you right.
